On Saturday, April 20, 2024, the hosts flew into the top three teams of the Bundesliga 2. They will fight for victory in the match Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Greuther Furth to try to get to the direct promotion and avoid playoff matches.

Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Greuther Furth: What to Expect

Fortuna Dusseldorf (F95)

Flingeraner has beaten HSV and has a three-point advantage over their rival before the next game, so three points in the Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Greuther Furth match could be decisive in the fight for promotion.

Fortuna has been steadily winning in the Bundesliga 2 for five matches now, and the hosts’ unbeaten streak has yet to be interrupted for nine games. An important factor is that the team practically does not concede, with Fortunen conceding only one goal in these five wins. In addition to victories against not the strongest teams (Wehen, Eintracht Braunschweig, Kaiserslautern, Osnabruck), the team also defeated Hamburger (2:0), so this victory now allows them to keep a three-point lead over the chaser.

Dusseldorf was included in our Bundesliga.2 season prediction as a team that would be in contention for promotion, and it turned out that way. In addition to the Dusseldorf vs Furth match, there will be matches against Schalke 04, Nurnberg, Holstein Kiel, and Magdeburg – and only Kiel looks like a really serious opponent.

SpVgg Greuther Fürth (Kleeblatt)

Kleeblätter has almost lost its chances of promotion, but fortunately, Alexander Zorniger’s men are no longer in danger of relegation, so the match Fortuna Dusseldorf—Greuther Furth will be one of the team’s matches this season.

The team lost its hopes for promotion due to a five-match winless streak, in which it managed to get points only in the match against HSV (1:1), but in the matches against Karlsruhe (4:0), Elversberg (1:4), Hansa Rostock (1:0) and Osnabruck (2:0), it suffered defeats. This showed that it was too early for Zorniger to claim a place among the leaders, as it was necessary to defeat first of all the mid-table and outsiders, and one point against Hamburger did not give almost anything.

Dusseldorf vs Fürth: Head-to-Head

Although the hosts are considered the favorite in this football match, it is worth noting that in the history of Fortuna Dusseldorf – Greuther Furth matches, the hosts won back in 2015, so this fact will also need to be taken into account. Greuther Furth won three of the previous five head-to-head matches, which can add to their motivation before the upcoming contest.

Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Greuther Furth: Possible Lineups

The hosts’ infirmary continued to fill up before the upcoming match. The Flingeraner are unlikely to be able to help in the next game: Ao Tanaka and Andre Hoffmann, who will most likely not have time to recover from their injuries. But those who will not help Fortunen are Takashi Uchino and Christos Tzolis, while the former went to the Japanese national team, the latter got too many yellow cards.

The guests will miss only Julian Green and Gian-Luca Itter, who have been injured since March. Also, Branimir Hrgota will not play, who had too many cards before this game.
